Kool Aid Your Way to Red Perfection
By: Courtney Leiva
As most bottled reds know, you leave the salon with gorgeous color and sooner than expected, your red hair begins to turn brassy and brazen. Sooner or later, you are forced to wear your hair in all different styles to cover up the dye job — my personal favorite is to pull my hair back in a bun and wrap a large headband around my head because it covers up the bad color, right?
Well, those days are over, thanks to a visit to my dentist’s office. I was browsing an old Instyle Magazine and discovered a trick to tone down over processed red hair. And it only costs $5.00!
According to popular New York City stylist, Tippi Porter, the secret to perfect color is purple Kool Aid.
All you need to do is:
-Mix 1 packet of Kool Aid grape powder with your shampoo.
-Wash and you should notice a difference immediately!
You may be asking yourself, Why Kool Aid?
The geniuses at Instyle state that because purple is on the opposite side of the color spectrum to red, the Kool Aid dye is able to cancel out brassy orange tones.
Hey, if it’s good enough for Instyle’s 50 Best Beauty Tips of All Time then its good enough for me.
